I long to be in a house where the sheets smell of lavender

''I long to be in a house where the sheets smell of lavender''
- Isaak Walton

I am creating hearts.
Lavender filled hearts to perfume your sheets ...
… or your ‘smalls’ drawer.
Or to dangle prettily from a door handle to scent the room.
I love creating hearts.
The air is filled with the sweet perfume of English lavender
Picked from my own cottage garden.
I love to sort through mounds of lace to adorn the heart, selecting the exact piece

To complement the linen, which  is lusciously soft and deliciously slubby ... 
... and choosing a piece of vintage jewellery to embellish the heart.
Filling with lavender.
Completing finally, with linen buttons to secure a pretty ribbon loop.

The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot
be seen or even touched.
They must be felt with the heart
